Nino Franco Grave di Stecca Brut 2010 was featured in the August 15, 2017 Forbes article What to Drink Now: The Best White Wines of August.
Contributor Katie Kelly Bell writes, “Yes, this is a pricey Prosecco but this bubbly is significantly more complex and decadent than any Prosecco I have tasted. Made with 100% Glera grapes from the Valdobbiadene district, it is herbal with a decadent palate of lemon creaminess and lemon meringue. The winery was founded in 1919 and the fruit for this wine is sourced from a single select vineyard, Grave di Stecca, an ancient origin vineyard on the slopes of the Prealpi. Indeed, from serious fruit comes a serious sparkling.”
